BIRGUNJ (Parsa), Dec 13: The number of patients suffering from cold and cough, fever and respiratory problems visiting hospitals has increased with the dip in the mercury in Parsa.     
There has been a surge of patients in the urban and rural areas with the increasing cold due to the onset of cold waves here for the past some days.   

The District Health Office, Parsa, stated that an increasing number of people suffering from cough and cold, fever and respiratory problems have been visiting the Birgunj-based Narayani Hospital, Prabhu Hospital, Nepal Mediciti Vayodha Hospital and the health facilities in the rural areas. These patients include infants and the elderly alike.    

The number of patients at the hospital has surged due to the increase in the cold in the last few days, said Dr Udaya Narayan Singh, the information officer of Narayani Hospital. He said 30 to 40 patients suffering from cough and cold, fever, pneumonia and other diseases have been visiting the hospital daily, seeking medication.    

According to him, the hospital is struggling to cope up with the surge in patients due to a shortage of beds. Dr Singh added that they are treating patients, keeping them on the floor for the lack of beds.
